Twitter boss Elon Musk has spoken out to warn the public about the dangers of putting children through life-altering sex-change treatments.
Since his takeover of Twitter, Musk has been outspoken on the issue of gender-transitioning minors.
In a post on Twitter last week, Musk cited a study conducted in Sweden that highlights the increased risk of suicide among “transgender” kids.
The study found that individuals with “transsexualism” have “considerably higher” risks for suicidal behavior after undergoing sex changes.
Comprehensive study in Sweden shows *increased* suicide!
Death for sex-reassigned persons was higher than for controls of same birth sex, particularly death from suicide. They also had increased risk for suicide attempts and psychiatric inpatient care. https://t.co/hIakkEJvJb

“The Swedish study says ‘sex-reassigned transsexual persons of both genders had approximately a three times higher risk of all-cause mortality than controls,’” Musk said.
“If we take as given that the other study 2–3X suicide rate is correct, then doing surgery or chemical sterilization on minors gain nothing in reduced mortality,” he continued.
“My position is simply that we should wait until an individual is mature enough to make their own decisions before other adults make permanent serious physical changes to them.”
"I regard cisgender as a slur."

Musk then doubled down the argument often cited among trans activists and the corporate media that increased suicide rates among transgenders is justification for affirming such an ideology.
“The counter to my position would be that if we don’t make the changes when they’re a minor, they may never reach adulthood due to suicide,” Musk said.
“However, that counterargument does not hold water if mortality is essentially unchanged, which it is.”
Musk then added: “[By the way], I regard cisgender as a slur.”
“Cisgender” is term used by the “woke” Left to describe someone who isn’t transgender.
